El Paso News

As dry air continues to stay in our area, condtions will warm up into the 70s for today.

Although temperatures will be above average today, they will start to decrease as the week continues on. This is because of a Pacific cold front making its way into the borderand from the West.

As dry air moves out of our area we will see a cooling trend thoughout the rest of the week. Tuesday will be the last day we see above average temepratures. Temperatures will be back in the 50s Thursday and Friday as well.

This front will bring in colder air, which will also keep wind speeds increased until Wednesday of this week.

For today winds will come from the Southwest at 5-10 mph in the morning, but will increase to 15-20 mph in the afternoon. We are expecting to see our peak wind speeds and gusts from 11 a.m. today until 3 p.m.

Humid air will also be associated with this front meaning we will see a 20% chance of spotty showers Tuesday and Wednesday. 

Increased cloud coverage will come in around 5 p.m. tonight and continue to be in our area until Thursday.
